Notice of Proposed Judgment of Divorce in a New Jersey Divorce. A Notice of Proposed Judgment of Divorce must be served upon a party in default twenty days prior to the default hearing date in a divorce, if the NPJ is not served timely then the Plaintiff will have to have the NPJ reserved for another day in order to provide the proper notice to a defendant in default in a New Jersey divorce in the New Jersey Family Courts. Generally, a plaintiff files a complaint for divorce and serves it with a summons upon the defendant, the other party.
The defendant has 35 days to answer or enter an appearance in the case. If they do not file either an answer or an appearance, then that party is in default and the plaintiff may go forward without the defendant.
New Jersey Divorce and PostJudgment Motions for Modification of Alimony or Child Support or Child Custody
New Jersey Divorce and PostJudgment Motions for Modification of Alimony or Child Support or Child Custody. After a NJ Divorce, one or the other party may seek a modification of alimony or child support based on a substantial change in circumstances. A substantial change in circumstance might include the loss or change of employment, the decrease or increase in one or the other parties income, a good faith reason for relocation out of the State of New Jersey for a job or to be by family, a change in the amount or the actual times that a party works and where they work etc. If a party wishes to modify they generally have to file a motion, unless the other party consents to what they are seeking in terms of relief or a change in the terms of any prior Property or Matrimonial Settlement Agreement, previously filed with the NJ Family Court.
NJ Divorce When Dealing with Foreign Defendants. Often in today's times, Defendants in a New Jersey Divorce live outside the United States, what does that mean in terms of accomplishing a divorce in New Jersey. Generally, the main issue is service of process, serving in a way that is granted by the Court the Defendant the summons and complaint for divorce and any other documents necessary in the future of the litigation e.g. Notice of Proposed Judgment (if you are seeking child custody, child support, alimony or equitable distribution of assets or debts). If you are only seeking a divorce, then service of the summons and complaint is what is necessary and if personal service cannot be accomplished then a Motion for Substituted Service or Service by Publication in a local newspaper, where the Defendant's last known address is, may be necessary.
